FQSFP SI Characterization Kits

SI test platform for characterizing FQSFP series Flyover™ QSFP28 Cable System


Overview

As data rates increase, trace length on PCBs decrease. Samtec’s high-speed, Flyover™ cable assemblies simplify PCB design and limit signal degradation in high data rate applications. The FQSFP SI Characterization Kits provide system designers and SI engineers an easy-to-use solution for testing FQSFP-DD series Flyover™ QSFP28 Cable System with various End 2 options.

The FQSFP to AcceleRate® Flyover™ SI Characterization Kit (REF-205303-X.XX-XX) routes eight high-speed differential pairs through high-precision RF connectors, the FQSFP-DD to AcceleRate® cable assembly and PCB-mount connectors.

The FQSFP to DCH Flyover™ SI Characterization Kit (REF-200471-X.XX-XX) routes eight high-speed differential pairs through high-precision RF connectors and the FQSFP-DD to DCH cable assembly.

The FQSFP Characterization Kits deliver high-quality systems with robust mechanical design. Please contact Samtec’s technical experts at KitsAndBoards@samtec.com for additional information.

In the video above, it might not appear that much is taking place, but just like with transformers there is “more than meets the eye.” Alright, that was corny, and I am mildly ashamed, but Nanosecond Event Detection for shock and vibration is nothing to be ashamed of testing. May...
Over the past few years, 3D modeling capabilites on Samtec.com have progressed immensely. We’ve gone from a small library of static files to a massive library of dynamically generated models, that can be downloaded as virtually any file type, in just a few seconds. Thousands of 3...
As one of the great superheroes learned – “with great power comes great responsibility.” Even without “spidey-sense” and the ability to scale tall buildings with webbing, there is still power to be wielded with Samtec’s new mPOWER™ connectors…with incredible power comes incredibl...
Readers of the Samtec blog are familiar with the benefits of FMC and FMC+. These popular interfaces define a compact electro-mechanical expansion interface for a daughter card to an FPGA baseboard or other device with re-configurable I/O capability. VITA 57.1 has been around for ...
In February, we rolled out several back-end performance updates to Samtec.com, as well as a few upgraded applications. Here are the major updates to Samtec.com for February 2019. Updated Experience for mPOWER™ Family Page The mPOWER™ connector system is the ultimate micro, high-p...
